Black Myotis

Myotis nigricans


We found this specimen near a waterfall, in a region of transition between the Cerrado and Atlantic Forest.


I starts my own researches with bats. It's a survey of species caught along the river that across my city. The "Myotis nigricans" have a vespertilionid diet.

So JoshuaGSmith, we use (I don't now the name in English for this type of Bat Net, but we call of something like "Fog-Net") bat nets with 9m and 12m in length by 3m in height. The Fog-Nets be 1m to 3m above the ground, and, we make a trail belong the forest with 9 to 15 Fog-Nets.
Sometimes we too use the "Dossel-Web" (don't know the English name), thats is a Net that we put using the the tall trees how suport.

In this spot, you can have a idea of the Fog-Net [ ]

I see that you are a sort of Chiropterologist! Bats are fascinating. I assume you catch bats using a large net?
